AI Appraisal DS News Fannie Mae Property Preservation repairs Safeguard Properties Servicing technology 2019-04-11 Radhika Ojha in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Technology How can data and analytics be utilized to manage risks to properties such as crime, vandalism, and emergency preparedness? This and many related questions were answered by experts during a DS News webinar titled “Risky Business: Using Data and Analytics to Protect Properties,” presented by Safeguard Properties.The webinar was moderated by Tim Rath, AVP, Business Development for Safeguard Properties, and featured insights from Jason Heckman, AVP, Mobile and Analytics for Safeguard Properties and John Thibaudeau, Director, Single-Family Real Estate for Fannie Mae into how technology is helping property preservation companies to identify cost-effective and timely solutions to protect and preserve homes.During the webinar, Thibaudeau said that technology had made great strides to assist with property preservation, repairs, and marketing. He spoke about the tools and apps that are helping Fannie Mae get real-time information for properties that need inspection. They are also used to guide inspectors and users on what to look for once they reach the property and help Fannie Mae to absorb all the appraisal data to prioritize their work.Discussing how data and technology go hand-in-hand for home repairs, Thibaudeau said that one of the key challenges companies face is ensuring consistency.Speaking about the evolution of technology in property preservation, Heckman said that the data being used in property preservation at present helped companies understand the story that each house had to tell. He said that the evolution of data was also helping to “proactively manage anything that can go wrong.”While buying and implementing such technology can be a costly affair, Heckman pointed out that the benefits of these systems far outweighed the cost in terms of better targeting of potential issues and managing risks that include the prevention of services to the wrong property.Answering a question on how servicing technology had changed today compared with what it used to be, Thibadeau said, “It is exciting to see how fast things continue to change. Today, speed is of the essence when you’re moving to new technology to keep an advantage.” Additionally, he said that technology continued to move on mobile solutions. “At the end of the day, we would love to provide technology to our customers where they can do business with us from anywhere.””The introduction of iPhone really changed what we could do in terms of collecting data and getting things in real time. The improvement from where it was when we started in the mid-2000s to where we are now, has greatly changed the capabilities of what’s available and what we can actually do,” Heckman said.Speaking about the type of technology that is being developed to address exceptions to vendor feedback, Heckman explained that it really went back to mobile technology and the aggregation of data. “We have capabilities to not only use scripts and text but also video capabilities which allow us to tell that story in real time,” he said.Looking at future technologies that were likely to advance property preservation procedures, both Thibadeau and Heckman concluded that artificial intelligence (AI) was the way forward. “The more interesting thing we’re seeing today is around AI and using machine learning to automate processes,” Thibadeau said. “It’s going to continue to evolve over the coming years.”Heckman added, “With the advent of AI, and the Big Data movement the way data is being stored is changing and will continue to evolve as AI models improve.”Click here to view a recording of the webinar.The topic of how the industry should prepare for and respond to disasters will be explored thoroughly at the upcoming Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium, to be hosted June 5-6, 2019, at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans.

Saturday By William James LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday she regretted Britain’s role in anti-gay legislation across its former colonies seeking to address criticism of the Commonwealth at its gathering in London May is looking to reinvigorate the Commonwealth a 53-country network of mostly former colonies as Britain seeks new post-Brexit ways to project its influence in the world and establish a role as a leader of free trade Speaking on the second day of a week-long meeting in London May addressed a wide range of humanitarian and environmental issues including laws which outlaw same-sex activity in 37 of its 53 member nations "I am all too aware that these laws were often put in place by my own country They were wrong then and they are wrong now" May said "As the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister I deeply regret both the fact that such laws were introduced and the legacy of discrimination violence and even death that persists today" London’s hosting of the summit has also been clouded by an official admission that the British government had treated migrants who arrived from Caribbean countries more than 50 years ago in an "appalling" way by incorrectly identifying them as illegal immigrants Speaking alongside May Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness drew loud cheers from the audience as he urged May to speedily respond to the issue "It is only fair" he said "It will lead to security certainly for those who have been affected and it is the kind of inclusive prosperity for which we stand as Commonwealth peoples" May herself apologised over the harsh treatment of the so-called "Windrush generation" whose parents were invited to Britain to plug labour shortfalls after World War Two later to be caught up in a tightening of immigration rules overseen by May in 2012 when she was interior minister EDUCATION COMMITMENT Although there is no Commonwealth free trade bloc and member states buy less than 10 percent of Britain’s exports ministers in London see the group and its 24 billion residents as an important part of their post-Brexit strategy Commonwealth membership stretches from large developed economies like Australia and Canada to tiny island states like Nauru in the Pacific On Thursday leaders of almost all states will convene for talks on the future of the network looking to agree trade environmental and developmental goals The government is lobbying for Prince Charles to succeed his mother Queen Elizabeth as head of the organisation despite reported unrest at that prospect among other members The issue is expected to be discussed on Friday May committed 212 million pounds ($304 million) to try to make sure children living in developing Commonwealth countries receive 12 years of quality education "I want this to be the summit where the Commonwealth agrees to make that the goal for all our members – and begins to put in place the concrete measures that will allow it to become a reality" she said May spoke alongside Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates also touching on the need to reduce malaria deaths saying around 90 percent of Commonwealth citizens live in countries where the disease is endemic She urged fellow leaders to target a halving of malaria rates by 2023 (Reporting by William James; Editing by Hugh Lawson) This story has not been edited by

when they take on a confident-looking Mumbai City FC in an Indian Super League game on Friday Delhi arein the middle of a horror run since their lone victory against FC Pune City in their season-opening away game on 22 November They have lost five games on the trot since then three of those at home and are currently lying at the bottom of the points table Delhi Dynamos will find it difficult to contain the in-form Balwant Singh ISL And come Friday Delhi would be eager to arrest the streak and add to their meagre point tally of three The hosts on the other hand had a hiccup in their last home game losing to ATK but then travelled to Guwahati to put it across NorthEast United FC They also have a chance to go to the number two slot on the table if they win at the Mumbai Football Arena Mumbai have won three out of seven games and drawn one and their tally of 10 has left them currently in the middle of the table but a victory over Delhi would pitchfork them higher Mumbai have had a mixed run so far and looked impregnable at home before ATK punctured it with a measured performance 10 days ago The hosts have a sound back four led by Romanian Lucian Goian and Brazilian Gerson Vieira backed up by the goal-stopping skills of Amrinder Singh who has emerged with two clean sheets as compared to none for the visitors an indication of what the visitors are up against Balwant Singh has been Mumbai’s most successful striker with four goals to his credit including a brace in the win in the previous away game against NorthEast United He has the backing of a good midfield led by Cameroon’s Achille Emana who himself has scored once so far in seven outings Two crafty midfielders Brazilians Thiago Santos and Everton Santos are the other players to have scored for Mumbai To bring more cheers is the fact that Sehnaj Singh is also back in contention to take the field after sitting out the last game due to four previous bookings Their Costa Rican coach Alexandre Guimaraes was happy over the team’s quick turnaround in Guwahati after the loss at home to ATK "I’m very satisfied because we improved our game in terms of playing a quality game We poached

they have got with captain Kalu Uche of Nigeria emerging the top scorer with two strikes to his credit Their midfield needs to be innovative to puncture holes in the strong Mumbai defence Another defeat would not only keep the visitors at the bottom of the table but also further dent their chances of making it to the playoffs By: AP | St Louis | Published: November 19 2016 5:41 pm Top News The NFL’s Rams are gone and attention in St Louis now turns to soccer with an ownership group pursuing a Major League Soccer expansion team The effort includes plans to build a $200 million stadium downtown that would require millions of dollars in public funding The ownership group revealed Thursday is known as SC STL Paul Edgerley a partner at the investment firm VantEdge Partners is lead owner and chairman Among his partners is Dave Peacock former president of Anheuser-Busch and a driving force behind the effort last year to build a $1 billion riverfront stadium for the Rams The football stadium plan died when the NFL in January approved Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s request to move the team to Los Angeles Since the departure of football efforts to secure an MLS team have escalated The MLS is already adding two new teams to expand to 24 by the end of the decade and eventually plans to add four more league spokesman Dan Courtemanche said St Louis is among eight markets that have publicly expressed interest in the four additional expansion slots Courtemanche said A timetable for when those cities would join the league has not been determined Commissioner Don Garber said in a statement that league officials have had “very productive” meetings with Edgerley and his partners “With its rich soccer heritage St Louis has always been a market of great interest to Major League Soccer and SC STL is the ideal ownership group that will provide St Louis the best opportunity for a future expansion team” Garber said The open-air stadium would have 20000 seats with the ability to expand to 28500 It would sit next to St Louis Union Station and encompass about 24 acres on land near Interstate 64 currently owned by the Missouri Department of Transportation The city has an option to buy the site but the value is still being appraised SC STL said it would fund “much” of the stadium construction cost but St Louis voters in April would be asked to fund a significant share up to $80 million according to the St Louis Post-Dispatch Specific details on the public portion are still being worked out but the spokesman for the ownership group Jim Woodcock said the stadium will only be built if the league approves a St Louis team Getting it on the ballot is no sure thing Though the NFL plan was eventually approved by city aldermen the debate was often contentious Alderman Sam Moore said at one meeting that some residents live in “Third World” conditions while taxpayers were paying for stadiums Messages left for Moore on Friday were not immediately returned The ownership group said it also will work with the state for financial assistance related to site development and infrastructure The stadium would be within about a mile of two other

about espionage or leakage of information pertain more to military and strategic affairs (Source: PTI Photo) Related News Over the past month the Central Bureau of Investigation and Delhi Police have been conducting searches at government offices in Lutyens’ Delhi Their aim is to bust alleged attempts by certain corporates and their intermediaries to access classified documents and information in various government departments ranging from oil coal and power to commerce and finance The probes have led to arrests and the questioning of people including low-level government employees chartered accountants consultants as well as fairly senior corporate executives These men are said to have been part of insidious rackets to leak files and draft cabinet notes on policy matters relevant to the operations of the companies concerned The striking thing in all this is the names of some of the corporates involved — largely the same lot that operated in the pre-liberalisation era and built fortunes in the protected licence raj environment that was supposedly dismantled nearly 25 years ago This despite the significant “churn” within the ranks of top business houses in the post-reform period If one were to look at the 10 big names today only three (Tata Ambani and Birla) figured in the top 10 list of 1990 Of the remaining seven two featured in the top-50 names of 1990 (Essar and Mahindra) while five were either non-existent or insignificant players when the reforms started (Vedanta Adani Jindal Bharti and Infosys) Even if a larger top-50 ranking of groups by sales is considered as many as 33 names — covering a wide swathe of industries from pharma (Sun Pharma Lupin) IT (Wipro HCL) and media (Sun Network Zee) to auto ancilliaries/ forging (Motherson Sumi Kalyani) and infrastructure (GVK GMR Jaypee) — were not part of this league in 1990 It says a lot about the way business takes place in India that even after 25 years of liberalisation and the sizeable churn with the entry of new players and the growth of new industries success is still a function of groups arbitraging on privileged information influencing policymaking or “managing” the politico-bureaucratic environment And some groups particularly have been past masters in this practice refusing to change even with reforms that have ostensibly redefined business to mean genuine risk-taking and innovation rather than having the right connections to obtain licences or land contracts Of course it is not just slimy and venal corporates who are to blame here In advanced economies worries about espionage or leakage of information pertain more to military and strategic affairs nuclear programme secrets or cyber attacks Rarely do you read about the disappearance of confidential files on foreign investment proposals or hydrocarbon pricing policy What this essentially highlights is the reluctance of the state to let go of discretionary policymaking powers in key economic sectors including energy which is still partially de-regulated ensuring that the stakes remain high for some business groups There is a convergence of interests here between entrenched corporates and framers of policy to keep decision-making processes opaque In the process access to confidential information itself becomes a source of money-making and a way to keep rivals out The current government seems to be keen on sending out a message of being tough against those engaged in corporate espionage So now we have CCTV cameras installed in the corridors of all the bhawans along with close monitoring if not restriction of movements of visitors It has also sought to project a commitment to transparent decision-making when it comes to the allocation of coal or telecom spectrum — auctions have clearly replaced the old regime of screening committees and first-come-first-serve But the proposed land bill amendments allowing the government to acquire land for industry without being bound to seek the consent of at least a majority of owners is hardly a model of transparency If anything it reeks of the same old crony capitalism model encouraging state grabbing of land to favour select houses in the name of developing industrial corridors The answer to corporate espionage and the theft of documents from sundry government departments or ministries cannot just be heightened surveillance or electronic locks To start with many of the secret papers are of little consequence to national security; they have been rendered secret simply because of those who stand to gain by trading on what should ordinarily be publicly available information The world over policy or rule-making is increasingly the outcome of wide public consultations which is how it should be with liberalisation One has in fact seen this approach being adopted in India by financial sector regulators Many of their regulations — for instance on private bank licences or on insider trading and primary market reforms — were made after they received comments from stakeholders and the public on draft proposals As a result the adoption of the final policy produced hardly any surprise Such an approach which aims at the wide sharing of information and making secrecy exceptional would cut policy-discretion to suit particular groups and level the playing field for all The winners in this case would be those with genuinely superior business judgement or risk-taking ability instead of those used to gaming the system The government and many of its arms first need to be nudged to make this transition Almost 25 years after India first started divesting the shares of state-owned companies the pricing of a share sale still has to be top secret requiring cabinet approval In all other listed companies the board and management would take such calls Yes we need to punish those reaping benefits by indulging in corporate espionage and stealing classified documents And yes many corporates also need to make the transition if they are to remain relevant in years to come But it would also help if the government used the present circumstances to open up more rather than shutting the door

Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by MK VENU | Published: October 31 2011 1:48 am Related News Mass psychology plays a very big role in determining the shape of the political economy If economic agentssuch as producers and consumersstart believing things are turning for the worseindeed they do start becoming worse This has broadly been the case with India over the past year and more A combination of circumstances a virtual paralysis of domestic governance and the rapidly worsening economic prospects in the West – has created a somewhat depressed sentiment in the local political economy Howeverit is equally true that bad news also has a natural cycle of playing itself out One view is that the political opposition against UPA 2 may have peaked too early Hereafter things may get better simply because it possibly cant get any worse Of coursethe government will have to start doing something substantive for this to happen Whatever the nature of their mandatemany governments go through a serious mid-life crisisbut what differentiates one from the other is how it handles the challenge Even the Rajiv Gandhi governmentwith a 400-plus presence in Lok Sabhahad suffered one HoweverUPA 2 has been somewhat unique because it suffered a series of early-life crises like no other government possibly did This happened partly because there were many contentious issues which had spilled over from UPA 1 For instancethe telecom scam had already acquired some momentum at the end of UPA 1 and had simply got stoked when A Raja was reappointed minister for telecommunications In factUPA 2 started on a controversial note when it became public that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had opposed Rajas reappointment as telecom minister The restas they sayis history Since UPA 2 was afflicted by early crisesit may appear to have time on its side Earliergovernments would face a serious crisis during mid-term typically in the third year and the momentum of political opposition would normally carry through till the year of the general election In the present instancehoweverthis is not likely to happen as the general elections are still two-and-a-half years away The UPA has a lot of time to address issues that may snowball into bigger political controversies at a later stage Some of these potentially disruptive issues may get sorted out in their natural life cycle For instancethe problem of persistently high inflation is likely to get resolved over the next few months There was a visible change for the better in economic sentiment when the RBI and the finance ministry gave a guidance that inflation is likely to taper off to 7 per cent by March-end from close to 10 per cent today Manmohan Singh is personally under attack from the opposition for economic mismanagement as inflation remains close to 10 per cent and GDP growth has tapered off from 95 per cent to 77 per cent in a matter of 20 months after the UPA returned to power So his government is having to offer an explanation on both counts why is growth so down and inflation up Howeverthe silver lining appeared last fortnight in the form of the central bank giving a guidance that inflation was possibly tapering off and consequently there will be a pause in the cycle of hike in interest rates This news was widely welcomed by both producers and consumers who had watched interest rates increase 13 times in the past 20 months The middle-class borrowers of home loans had been particularly affected as their loan tenures were getting extended by 10 to 15 years For instanceif they had planned to finish paying off their 20-year home loan just before their retirement age of 60the increased interest rates would make them pay till the age of 70 and even more So a possible reversal in the interest rate cycle will bring a lot of relief to both producers and consumers in the economy The stock markets too roundly welcomed this development with a rare bounce as foreign institutional investors returned to buy Indian stocks This bit of good news was further aided by the comprehensive European bailout package for Greece and the announcement of a much larger corpus of European Financial Stability Fund $14 trillion to help banks tide over capitalisation problems This development is singularly critical for improving economic sentiment in India as also other emerging markets The timing is just right to attack the growing negative sentiment and create conditions for revival of investment by the private sector There is still enough pent-up demand over the medium term in cementsteelpowerroadsports and housing Policy-makers can create the right conditions for investment in these sectors The UPA must consider itself lucky that things could be turning for the better in the political economy It should now get its act together and show some credible governance initiatives to give momentum to the positive signs appearing on the horizon If the UPA has any survival instinctof which little is in evidence so farit must take a series of decisions to improve both atmospherics as well as the situation on the ground It is a perception battle as much as anything else The prime minister has hinted that the government will bring a credible Lokpal bill in Parliament after its review by a standing committee There is a buzz that the UPA will surprise its opponents with a stronger than expected Lokpal legislation in the winter session of Parliament If this were to happenthe opposition will be devoid of one big issue it is riding on Besides thisthe UPA must also make good on its promise of some other key governance legislation to change the way politics is run in the country A new electoral funding legislation and a transparent public procurement law are actively being pursued by the UPA These have the potential to transform the way people look at this government And the government has enough time to do all this After allthere are some advantages of an early-life crisis The writer is Managing Editor?
